The Colorado River Crossing Balloon Festival is one of Yuma’s Premier Events. Mass ascensions every morning at sunrise from the West Wetlands Park give you a breathtaking glimpse of these creative balloons.  Admission to morning launch is a canned food donation.

The highlight and crowd favorite of this 3 day event is the Balloon Glow at Desert Sun Stadium on Saturday evening. Tethered balloons glow brightly as their burners are fired to choreographed music. The admission to the glow is $2 per person and canned food donation to benefit the less fortunate in Yuma County.

Take-Over Concert Held at Lutes Casino


The Arizona Western College Jazz Ensemble will be performing during an upcoming Take-Over Concert at Lutes Casino, (221 S. Main St).


The event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 18, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Lutes Casino will donate a percentage of every food order to benefit the Jazz Ensemble.


“We want to play for a live audience, and an audience of friends, family, and fellow students can be particularly gratifying,” said Shawn Pollard, Professor of Instrumental Music. “This concert is a warm-up of sorts for the Jazz Ensemble’s fall concert on December 6, at the AWC Theater.”


Funds raised during this Take-Over Concert will go to the AWC Instrumental Scholarship Fund that is primarily used to pay the private lesson fees for deserving music students.


For more information, contact Professor Shawn Pollard at louis.pollard@azwestern.edu or 

(928) 344-7573.

A new season of Yuma Territory Live Steamers starts October 14 and 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. through May 2018. The new schedule will include both Saturday and Sunday rides on the 2nd and 4th weekends, October thru May. Located at East Riverside Park, below the Historic Prison. Like us on Facebook, or visit website at YumaLiveSteamers.org or call 928-782-1988.

Yuma Territory Live Steamers offer rides to the public on a 7-1/2-inch-gauge railroad that is large enough for kids and adults to ride. Our goals are to have fun and to educate children and adults about railroading history and safety. Official railroad signals are used when we are running for the proper start, stop, reverse and going thru road crossings. Yuma is one of the major hubs for trains traveling through, some days having as many as 50 trains both coming and going.

Find the mini-railway located off of Giss Parkway on Prison Hill Road at Riverside Park just below Yuma Territorial Prison.

Live Steamers also offer charter runs for birthday parties, picnics and other events, as well as having a Junior Engineer Program for children to learn more about the proper operation of a train.

Stop by and check it out; the Live Steamers are happy to tell you about the club — a 501(c)3 non-Profit club which kindly asks a $2 donation per person for the ride.

All aboard!
